[FEATURE] Picture Me Rollin’: Jason Wu’s Track To Street S2000

It’s been a long while since I’ve done any action or roller shots of any car, so when my buddy Jason requested some rollers of his daily driver, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the opportunity. What’s interesting about his daily driver is it’s actually a dual purpose S2000, both for street and track duties that’s equipped with a big Voltex Type II spoiler. His other car; an E90 M3 that’s also equipped with a Voltex wing and is very similar to the S2000 as far as tasteful and functional modifications are concerned. So, without further adieu, some shots of the Rio S2000 after the break. Enjoy.

First off, an old shot of the weekend warrior.

A little rusty with rollers but I think they came out okay. The sun was beating down on us, so conditions were not that favorable.

Views from the Great Highway in San Francisco.

The newly added Voltex Type II is a must for any track car.

A couple of static shots to round out this short set. Wheels are 17×10 +45 S2000 spec Volk Racing CE28n.

Finishing the post off with my favorite shot from the set.

Thanks for looking! Until next time…


Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 5]

So here it is the last of it, I gotta make sure I have these up before all the Seattle goodness overwhelms the San Jose stuff on the web. But if you are interested in seeing some Seattle coverage after this, be sure to head over to STICKYDILJOE.COM for some really good coverage and some harsh but good reading material. He had me at “Stop making fake FR-S Rocket Bunny panels fit on your cars. THEY DON’T FIT! There’s such a thing called “body lines” that people need to follow for Christ’s sake.” This short rant just resonates with me because that’s exactly how I feel about the aftermarket scene these days, especially in California. So I hope future builders and new generation car enthusiasts take notes and hopefully we can get back on track as far as great car builds are concerned. Anyways, back to the matter at hand, I did a slight adjustment in editing with the last batch of photos so hopefully you guys like them. Thanks for looking as always!

A lovely E30 M3 on OZ Futuras.

White RWB looks pretty damn clean.

This Evo had a mixture of exterior panels such as Ings side skirts and C-West front that actually worked pretty well. Of course the engine bay with the dump tubes was also nicely done.

No pistons and big turbo.

You can almost never go wrong with Varis on any car like a 370Z and Evo X, respectively.

The Mackin booth was pretty lit with a full carbon GTR and of course, their wheel displays.

Love this Wald ISF equipped with a little extra boost.

Pretty clean E46 on BBS GT2s.

Kinda like the livery on this Cayman GT4.

This is another popular Bay Area car.

Voltex is my favorite attire on Evos.

Do you prefer the R34 or R35? I’m sure I know what the majority would vote for…

A couple of Pandem cars made their way up from LA for the show.

Another one from SoCal is the LB 458.

My friend David’s Knight Sports FD that I did a feature on a couple months back. -> Knight Sports FD

Clean IS300/Altezza by the Chronicles booth.

And finally, closing out the coverage with this crazy RB26 powered Bimmer.

So there you have it, I know it really wasn’t a full coverage but I think I got just about all that needed to be covered as far as for this site is concerned. I hope you guys enjoyed what I did cover and see you guys on the next post!

Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 4]

Alright looks like I was kidding about this being the last post for the Wekfest SJ coverage cause I have a little more photos to go through, and also I want to keep the posts at a reasonable length, so make sure to check out “Part 5” as well when it goes up. Before we continue on to the photos, I just want to say that I’m super bummed out that I missed Wekfest Seattle because the PNW and the Canadians brought some serious heat to the show. Judging from the pictures that I’ve seen so far, it’s safe to say that the Seattle showing was of higher quality than the SJ one. Now, I just have to make a note to not miss out on that show next year. But anyways, back to some Wekfest SJ photos…

Project Cars 2 had the best booth at the show with their wide body M3 and their racing simulators setup.

The Phaze2 86 was one of my favorites at the show. You really can’t go wrong with a Varis wide body setup along with perfectly fitting OG TE37s.

Strasse Sport 991 GT3 looking fabulous.

This Speed Element STi is always a welcomed sight at all the Bay Area shows.

I find it extremely difficult to find a clean Rocket Bunny V1 86 these days.

Super clean LSx swapped FD. It’s just not my cup of tea because I’m a purist and prefer no pistons when it comes to RX7s.

Voltex attire with Volk Racing TE37V shoes on a STi; tough to beat this combo.

Another Bay Area car show regular from the Speed Element crew.

This is not a bad looking X.

Another one of my favorites at the show, coming all the way from SoCal. I’ve actually been following this build and I just love all the parts and details that’s been added to this car. And this is probably one of the best TE37V Mark II setups I’ve seen.

The Speed Element crew had all the right cars at the show; this R32 is another clean example.

The TrackSpec Evo was a welcomed sight at the show, at least for me.

And finally, closing out this post with this fine GRB aired out on Volk Racing TE37V Mark II.

Remember to check back for the next part!
